There is 3 type of accommodation available at The Glimpse of Heaven:

  • Our two Master Suites both feature a spectacular view of the Ahuriri Valley, a private sitting area both indoors and outdoors, your own private ensuite, super king-sized bed, double sided gas fire place and a luxurious bath tub.
  • Our three Lodge Suites do not sacrifice on the view and offer a private sitting area both indoors and outdoors, private ensuite, super king-sized bed & gas fire place.
  • Our three pods are nestled gently into the landscape — out of sight but only a stone’s throw from the main lodge and with mirrored glass walls on three sides. These quarters bring the environment well and truly into the fore, while offering the ultimate in privacy and escape. Luxuriously heated and totally private, these pods allow our guests to experience our ever changing environment in its most nuanced forms. With all the modern conveniences to afford premium luxury — ensuite, kingsize bed, private outdoor bathtub, outdoor sitting area, and the finest linen and toiletries — our pods will offer a continuous and fluid experience of the pristine Ahuriri Valley.

Near the bottom of the habitable world is the breathtaking and pristine Ahuriri Valley. Carved over millions of years by the once fierce glacial waters of the Ahuriri River, the valley is now a tranquil, yet comfortingly rugged slice of paradise in New Zealand’s South. And resting almost imperceptibly on the valley floor is GLIMPSE OF HEAVEN, our new and truly unique luxury lodge. 

Starting with an elegant wooden slatted roof paying direct homage to the contours of the earth below, the design of the building creates an undeniable sense of harmony between structure and land. A harmony that has diffused itself through everything we do at GLIMPSE OF HEAVEN.

The interior of the building features beautiful Spotted Gum wooden panelling and imposing Bluestone masonry throughout, reflecting the tones and geography of the outside environment — with sweeping floor to ceiling windows blurring the barriers between the inside and outside worlds. The lodge features two spacious master suites, three luxurious lodge suites, three pods, our Great Hall for dining, a bar, lounge areas, a games room, and a billiards room, all finished in the same beautiful aesthetic and designed for the utmost comfort and luxury.

As a continuation, our kitchen is as harmoniously furnished as the rest of our property. Featuring unique and distinguished natural ingredients such as locally foraged porcini mushrooms, and wild Fiordland Venison, creating contemporary and refined dining experiences — matched with our amazing wine selections, dining with us truly is unforgettable. 

And if that wasn’t enough, the environment around us offers myriad ways to further engage. From angling in the Ahuriri River, to horse trekking around the expansive Ben Avon Station, GLIMPSE OF HEAVEN experience extends far beyond the threshold of our doors. And is entirely underpinned by our warm high country hospitality. 

At GLIMPSE OF HEAVEN we use nature as our weathervane, and so when we see the effortless perfection of our environment, we are implored to emulate it. And so that’s what we do. 

Our lodge is located in the Ahuriri Valley, 30 minutes away from the closest town Omarama. Please note that due to our remoteness, we do not have cellphone coverage at the lodge but we do offer complimentary wifi connection.

We are located 2 hours away from Queenstown and about 5 hours fro, Christchurch. The road to us is 95% concrete with the last 15 min being gravel.
